Why is it the Secret Weapon for Teen Inventors?
History tells us about 12 year olds captaining ships across thousands of miles, we shouldn’t be surprised that teenagers are capable of so much more than they are challenged to do. It’s not that they need to be worked harder. They need bigger horizons, more meaning, harder tasks. The buzzword is “connected learning”, but we just call it “hard fun”.
Teens learn practical skills such as 3D printing, 3D CAD design, programming, and electronics, but in a fun and challenging environment. They collaborate, not as a gimmick, but because the challenge is too hard to solve on their own. We create challenges worthy of their intellect with tools powerful enough to hold their attention. This is the best experience to jumpstart your teen’s curiosity AND technical skill.

What Parents Say about Inventor Camp
We have been putting on Inventor Camps for several years, and every year, parents AND students tell us how much they love it. Here are a few of the things our parents and inventors have said.
Every morning during the Inventor Camp, Kevin was dressed and ready to go by 7:30am. He doesn’t even do that for Disneyland!
~Debbie Johannes from Hesperia, CA
3D printing is awesome! Also coding is kinda nice, but 3D printing–maaaannnnn!
